You can install the TrueSight Presentation Server unattended (a silent installation), which requires no user interaction during installation. You can perform a silent installation, as described in this topic, or use the installation wizard.
The following files are used to configure the silent installation of Presentation Server:
These files are located in the Disk1 directory of the Presentation Server installation file structure.
The following topics are included:
Before you begin the silent installation, complete the following items:
On the system where you want to install the Presentation Server, complete the following procedure:
Use a text editor to open the relevant server-silent-options.txt file.
Specify a valid installation directory for the Presentation Server:
The <directory> is the installation location, which must be empty. If the Windows path includes a space, enclose the path in quotation marks.
Under the Installation Features section is the Presentation Server component name.
Under the Installer Configuration section, enter the TrueSight Server installation configuration information.
If required, change the default port numbers. Ensure that the port number you enter is available.
Presentation Server configuration descriptions
|The system's localhost Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN)|
Presentation Server High Availability (HA) option.
The default value (0) means that the HA option is enabled.
The HA option is set to the Primary Server mode or Secondary Server mode.
The default value (1) means that the Primary Server mode is enabled.
The Secondary server maintains a constantly updated cache memory of the Presentation Server activity.
The elasticsearch cluster name for one node (server), or more nodes, that holds all of the data, and provides federated indexing and search capabilities across all nodes.
The default value for the cluster name is "truesight". It is recommended to change this name to reflect the logical group name of the cluster.
If you do not use the default High Availability port numbers, only use port numbers between 1024 and 65535.
|The number of the Primary Cache Replication port|
|The number of the Primary Control port|
|Secondary (standby) server host name |
Only applicable when set to Primary Server mode (TrueSight_high_availability_type =1).
|TrueSight_high_availability_secondary_database_port||The number of the Secondary Server database port|
|The number of the Secondary Server Cache Replication port|
|TrueSight_high_availability_secondary_control_port||The number of the Secondary Server Control port|
Secondary server configuration file
Only applicable when set to Secondary server mode (TrueSight_high_availability_type =0).
This is the HA configuration file that is uploaded during the Presentation Server installation.
|Apache Tomcat HTTP port number|
|Apache Tomcat HTTPS port number|
|Elasticsearch Representational state transfer (REST) port number|
|TrueSight_ElasticSearch_client_port||Elasticsearch client port number|
|TrueSight_cell_gateway_port||Cell Gateway port number|
|TrueSight_database_username||User name for the PostgreSQL database|
|TrueSight_database_confirm_password||Re-enter the encrypted user password|
|TrueSight_database_port||The database port number|
|TrueSight_sso_hostname||The host's Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) for the BMC Atrium Single Sign-On server|
|TrueSight_sso_port||The Single Sign-On port number|
Use the port number of the Atrium Single Sign-On server installed on the system. The default port number is 8443.
|TrueSight_sso_password||The Atrium Single Sign-On server encrypted super user password. The Single Sign-On super user name is amadmin.|
The Maintenance Tool enables you to create an encrypted password that the Presentation Server requires for importing a KeyStore. You must use an encrypted password so that the KeyStore password is not exposed in the server-silent-options.txt file.
You can run the Maintenance Tool in a GUI or from the command line interface (CLI).
TrueSight_database_passwordparameter as follows:
Run the following command, entering your password for the
TrueSightPServerMaintenanceTool.cmd -silent -encrypt -encrypt -password=<password> -confirm_password=<password>
.sh -silent -encrypt -encrypt -password=<password> -confirm_password=<password>
For Linux installations, any password that includes special characters requires single quotation marks before and after the password. For example:
.sh -silent -encrypt -encrypt -password='<password>' -confirm_password='<password>'
Copy and paste the encrypted password output to the server-silent-options.txt file for your silent installation.
For example, if the encrypted password output is DES\:d70cbe3669602717ce66af37cce7ecf0, modify the
TrueSight_database_password parameter as follows:
-J TrueSight_database_password= DES\:d70cbe3669602717ce66af37cce7ecf0
Perform the following tasks after installing the Presentation Server:
Role-based user access to the features and components that comprise the BMC TrueSight Operations Management is enabled by persona-based authorization profiles. Each authorization profile is associated with one or more BMC Atrium Single Sign-On (SSO) Server realms and comprises user groups, roles and permissions, and objects. These authorization profiles determine the features and objects that users can access and monitor. You can . If necessary, you can also create authorization profiles.
